    The original Lurssen News thread was locked because it has become too lengthy over the years so a new one has been started.

    The last entry into the original news thread was about the commonality between the two superyachts with the name "Podium". The Lurssen as well as the new Feadship. Makes me wonder if the brand new 73M "Podium" from Feadship is the successor to the ex. Lurssen "Linda Lou"/"Limelight"/"Podium".

    Most likely, it notes the owner is a repeat Feadship customer. In addition to the refit on "Linda Lou", he was also the original owner of the Feadship "Detroit Eagle".

    Wasn't the Detroit Eagle originally the Gallant Lady? Possibly you meant to say the owner of the original Detroit Eagle?

    There were two Feadships named Detroit Eagle:

    116ft - launched as Gallant Lady in 1988
    153ft - launched as Detroit Eagle in 2001, later named Sea Racer. She's for sale now with Burgess as Excellence

    I do know they were building a bigger feadship, so most likely.

    Luerssen launched a new 90m yacht. Considering her distinct style and the fact that the flags of the United States, Sweden and Hungary were attached to the yacht, I think it's safe to say this is Skat's successor.

    It has way too many design elements of the current "Skat" for it not to be the successor! I'm not sure about the bow but I will wait until she is completed.

    That boat really shows the signature of Mr. Simony. A new Skat ! Stunning vessel. I am looking forward to her exterior colour.

    The asking price is 56.5 million euros - reasonable, in my opinion.
